Bishopston, Swansea County, Southern Wales, Wales
This is a truly unique holiday experience away from roads, traffic and street lights. Access is via the owner's 4x4 down a half mile track cut into the cliff and through a ford in the nearby river. Once here you will access most places by foot, be able to spend hours on the beach or seek adventures amongst the numerous footpaths that leave here to access Gower's beaches, castles, pubs and cafes!

There are of course some draw backs:
- Vehicular access is by 4x4 only
- Heating is via wood burning stove
- Mobile phone reception is very limited

But then think of the positives:
- Vehicular access is by 4x4 only!
- Heating is via wood burning stove!
- Mobile phone reception is very limited!
- Peace, quiet, owls, bats, stars, the sound of the sea at night…

This enchanting, picturesque bay is set within the heart of the Gower P...

This is just the coolest place we've ever stayed. Rustic but fantastic. It's even a real adventure just on the journey down the cliff. Bob and Kath are great, the beach is great, we cooked on a fire on the beach most nights and slept with the French doors open listening to the surf. Wish it were ours!!!!

It grieves us to write a review as we want to keep it a secret!! But we have to give credit where it's due, we holiday in Scotland and abroad but Ship cottage is by far our favourite spot! We have 2 dogs who love to run free, so it's perfect having your own beach. The cottage is cosy and...
